The Faculty's Vacation 

(With Apologies to Rudyard Kipling) 



When Tubman's last day is over, and the rooms are dusted and swept, 
When the oldest Seniors departed, and the youngest Freshman has left. 
We shall rest — and, faith, we shall need it — go off for a camp or a trip. 
Till next fall Mr. Garrett doth call each to pack her grip. 

And we who were wise will be foolish; we shall sit in a light canoe. 
Go fishing, crabbing and dancing and often picnicing, too; 
We shall find our rest and refreshment 'mid mountains and pine trees tall, 
We shall play all the livelong summer and never get tired at all. 

And no more the students will praise us, or rather no more will they blame; 
We will stop taking life seriously, and start treating it as a game. 
And each in the joy of vacation — Whether by mountain or sea — 
Will forget the past and the future in delight with "things as they be."

Follow the trail of the butterflies.

Under the towering trees. 
Beneath the blue of the Southern skies,

Where the crimson and gold in beauty furl 

In their glory and splendor hung. "

The Class of Nineteen-Twenty 



We're the class of nineteen-twenty 

From the good old Tubman High. 
We're nearly thru with lessons and 

The end is drawing nigh. 

We are fifty-four in number, and 

Many are the things we've learned; 
Great were cur fears and struggles 

When our dear old school was burned. 

Sophomore year we were frozen out, 

For great was the shortage of coal; 
So, patriotically, we shivered while 

We thought of the distance to our goal. 

Junior year we were full of fear 

For the "flu " had shut us out. 
And so far away was our Senior year 

That to graduate was in doubt. 

But we've studied hard thru every struggle, 

And now great is our fame; 
We've even found time for basketball 

And we've won 'most every game. 

And now vfe are great Seniors, 

And old Tubman is so dear 
That, strange as it may seem to you. 

We regret that the end is near. 

But even though we're nearly through 

We knovir we've done our best. 
To make our dear new^ Tubman 

A pride for all the rest. 

But alas! amid tears and joyous cries 

The end is almost here. 
And the class of nineteen-twenty 

Will be but a memory dear. 

BESSIE SANDLER.

WAS lying in the hammock on the porch of my cottage at the 
seashore. (I, now Mme. Wise, the permanent hair waver, 
was taking a rest at this quiet summer resort.) The tide was 
low and there were few \N'aves. Glancing seaward 1 saw^ a 
strange looking object moving over the surface of the water. 
As it drew nearer, I decided it must be a submarine. By this 
time part of the body could be seen. It was evident that it 
w^as headed for the nearest dock. I arose from the hammock and ran down 
to the beach, but I did not make much progress on account of the hundred 
and fifty additional pounds that I had gained since my high school days. 
At last I reached the dock to find that the sub. was already fastened to the 
pier and a man and woman were disembarking. As I drew nearer, the 
face of the w^oman looked very familiar, but it w^as not until she smiled and 
ran to meet me that I recognized my old school-mate, Annie Murray. She 
then introduced me to her husband, whom I readily recognized as a noted 
athlete whom I had read about. It was strange that Annie recognized me 
as 1 had grown rather stouter. 1 remarked about this, but she laughed and 
said that she had heard of my ill-fate from Ruth Bishop who was a traffic 
cop on a United States patrol boat stationed in mid-ocean and w^ho had 
"pulled" her for speeding. How like Ruth! I thought. She still liked to 
have her own way. Annie said that Ruth came on board her sub., and 
talked about old school days. Ruth told Annie that one afternoon just 
before twilight, seeing one of the newly-invented boats for crossing the ocean 
in three days dash by her boat, breaking all speed laws, she ■was obliged to 
call a halt to it, and whom do you suppose she saw^ on deck? None other 
than Elizabeth Maddox. She asked Ruth on board for a chat, and ex- 
plained that she was on her w^ay home for a vacation after spending years 
of hard work in China as a missionary. Elizabeth showed her some chop- 
sticks and souvenirs that she was taking back to the U. S. A. I remembered 
Elizabeth's hobby in T. H. S. 

I then asked Annie and her husband to come on up to my cottage for 
tea. When we arrived there, they explained that they w^ere touring the vsrorld 
and begged me to join them on a trip to Nevv York. 1 didn't need much 



45 



coaxing, so I hurriedly packed my things and we were soon off. In a short 
■while we reached our destination. 

As we were disembarking at New York, a large, masculine-looking person 
came rapidly toward us. She quickly demanded our passports. The voice 
seemed very familiar, and looking more closely I recognized Pearl Cohen, now 
an immigration officer. 

We had time before lunch to do a little shopping, so Annie and 1 left 
the masculine member of our party at the hotel while we performed our 
mission. As we walked up Fifth Avenue, my attention was suddenly drawn 
to a large electric sign extending over the sidewalk. Here is what 1 read : 
"Mme. Walter's Perfect-fitting Gown Shop." "Surely that can't be our old 
classmate, Ethel," said Annie. 

"Let's go in and see," 1 suggested. When we entered, the first person 
that met my eyes was Ethel strolling around displaying one of the perfect- 
fitting gowns. Can you imagine it? As soon as the informal greeting was 
over, she begged us to sit down and rest awhile. We, of course, started 
talking about our former school-mates. 1 asked her if she knew anything 
about any of them. "Oh, yes," she said, "Thelma Prescott is head nurse 
at Bellevue Hospital. 1 suppose you know that Elizabeth Henry married a 
prosperous farmer of South Carolina. " 

Looking at my watch, I saw that it was time to meet Annie's husband 
for lunch. As we made our way down the crowded street a little newsboy 
ran up and thrust a paper before me. I purchased it to read. After lunch, 
when I unfolded it, much to my amazement the headlines read, "New 
Species of Frog Discovered," and below this "Professor E. Weathersbee 
Makes Most Brilliant Discovery of the Day." Could this noted Professor 
of Biology be Evelyn? "Wonders never cease," I thought to myself. In 
turning the pages quite an unusual poem attracted me. After reading it, I 
looked to see who the poet was — but, alas, it was a poetess, and none other 
than Nancy Wright. 

That afternoon, while we were out sight-seeing, our attention was drawn 
to a crowd of people who w^ere cheering and pitching their hats into the air. 
We drew nearer to see w^hat the commotion was about and then we found 
Augusta von Sprecken and Margaret Montgomery, standing on soap boxes, 
gesticulating to the surrounding crowd. We paused for a moment to see 
w^hat they were talking about. Each was trying to convince the throng that 
her new scientific discovery — a substance that would turn sawdust into gold 
— was the best. Neither could out-argue the other; consequently, the crowd 
dispersed without buying either. 

Going home after the theater that evening, we passed a noted cabaret. 
Nothing would do Annie's husband but to stop there for a while. We walked 
in and took a seat. In a few minutes the lights were turned off everyw^here 
except on the stage. A tiny bell boy came dancing out, and down the steps 
to our very table. 1 gasped with surprise as 1 recognized Dorothy Levy. 

46 



I thought how strangely Fate mocks us. She stopped and chatted a while, 
and I asked her if she knew the where-abouts of any of our school-mates. 
She said that she knew of only one, Dorothy Brill, who was a school teacher 
in a nearby town. 

The next morning we arose early so that we might go to see a famous 
tvorld-known spiritualist who acted as medium between this world and the 
spirit-world. As she w^as very popular, ^ve were anxious to interview her 
before so many people gathered there to consult her. Our taxi stopped 
before a beautiful home in Brooklyn. We got out and went up the big 
marble stairs and were ushered into a spacious living-room, elegantly fur- 
nished. The door leading into the next room, from w^hich mysterious sounds 
issued, had been left half open. We glanced in. It w^as a w^eird, "spooky" 
looking place. A little woman with a soft voice sat at a table. Across from 
her sat a little old man with grey hair. She was telling him excitedly about 
some departed spirit that lived on the fourth dimension. Who could they 
be? We were not long kept in suspense, for they arose and came to the 
door. Could I be dreaming? There before my eyes stood Verlie Whitlock, 
the famous spiritualist, and Mr. Stemple, our former chemistry teacher and 
a confirmed hater of spiritualists. 

We returned to the hotel about I 2 o'clock for lunch, and the first thing 
I did was to stop by the office to see if there was any mail. The clerk handed 
me a large envelope which I immediately recognized as some of my business 
stationery. I opened it and saw that it was from the girl that I had left in 
charge of my business. She advised me to return as soon as possible as a 
certain Miss Vonita Hiers was opening a beauty parlor and was specializing 
on permanent w^aves. I thought if this w^ere the same Vonita that went 
to Tubman, that I certainly had better return, for I knew that she would 
surely put me out of business if she still had the wave that she had while in 
Tubman. 

Just as I was finishing. Hty letter, some one hit me on the back and said, 
"Why, hello, what are you doing here?" I turned quickly, and there before 
me stood Mabel Claire Speth, dressed as an aviatrix. I asked her what she 
was doing there. "Why," she said, "I brought the famous suffragist. Hazel 
Mertins, over from England to make a speech in New^ York. She is one 
of the staunchest suffragists in the world, and has been touring the old country 
making addresses." I was not at all surprised at this, as I remembered how 
she had practiced on us in T. H. S. I then told Mabel that I had been called 
home on business. "Good!" she said, "I'm going that way myself. I'll 
give you a lift." " I bade my friends good-bye and prepared for my trip 
with Mabel. When we were well on our way I asked Mabel if she knew^ 
the fate of any of the class of nineteen-tw^enty. "Oh, yes, " she answered, 
"Frances Parker is a popular society matron in Atlanta. I suppose you 
know of Bessie Sandler's fame as an artist?" 

I replied in the affirmative, for I had seen her masterpiece w^hile I was 
in New^ York. "Let me tell you something funny that happened the other 
day," I said. "As I was going down one of the streets in New York, this 

47 



sign caught my eye: 'Come in and learn how to blush. Guarantee to re- 
fund money if not satisfied.' 1 couldn't resist the temptation, so 1 walked 
in, and who do you suppose was the instructor? It was no other than Edna 
Ingram. 1 remembered her numerous variety of blushes in T. H. S., and 
knew^ that she must be a success, so 1 paid for a few lessons in advance. ' 

Just then the machine began to wobble, and 1 was greatly frightened. 
"What's the matter? Is there too much weight in here? " 1 asked in one 
breath. "No." said Mabel, "1 dont know w^hats wrong, but we'll have to 
land. Fortunately, we're over Philadelphia. " So we landed and she gave 
the machine the "once over,"" finding that she would have to get a new 
part for it. As it would be the next day before we could start again, we 
consequently made our way to the hotel. When we entered the lobby, 1 
saw a familiar figure which 1 immediately recognized as Frances Tucker. 
She told us that she ^vas manager for that hotel, and w^as doing a rushing 
business owing to the appetizing meals they served, which were prepared by 
Mary Printup. So Mary couldn"t get very far from anything to eat. lt"s 
a wonder that there were any profits if Mary still had the appetite that she 
possessed at Tubman, 1 thought. 

I then went up to my room to rest a while. On the table 1 found a 
book of poems that some one had evidently left behind in a hurried departure. 
Out of sheer curiosity 1 picked the volume up and glanced through it. Much 
to my amazement 1 saw that it was a collection of poems written by Marie 
Sumerau. Could this be another of my old class-mates? Yes, indeed, for 
on looking more closely 1 saw that the first poem had been dramatized by 
Annie Lee Cannon, Maude Grealish being the heroine. This promised to 
be interesting, so 1 read on and found that Olga Hargrove played the part of 
the comedian and Ethel Hitt had been the scenery painter. I remembered 
their talents in dear old Tubman, and was quite confident that they had been 
successful. 

By this time 1 was quite rested, so 1 put on my hat and strolled uptown 
to see if 1 could find a dress to wear to the theater that evening. 1 passed 
a show window that displayed several beautiful gowns for stout women, so 
I went in. 1 asked to see the manager, and when she appeared, who do 
you suppose it was? Isabelle Garrett, of course. We chatted for a while 
about old school days, and then 1 noticed a handsome model, with a most 
becoming sport suit on, walking around in the rear of the store. She seemed 
strangely familiar, but 1 couldn't place her. I turned to ask "Izzy" about 
her, when I noticed that the model was smiling. '"Why, don"t you recognize 
her?"" asked Isabelle. "That"s Ida Masur. She's still handsome as ever. 
I bet you don't know v/ho the customer is. " 1 looked, but as she had her 
back turned I didn't recognize her. "That"s "Taffy" Card looking at the 
sport suit. She now holds the worlds tennis championship."" 1 was not 
surprised at this, for she was such an expert player in T. H. S. "You re- 
member Sarah Poliakoff?" "Izzy " went on. "Well, she is my bookkeeper, 
and is considered one of the best in town. ' We had talked so long that I 
had to leave before buying my dress in order to meet Mabel and fulfill our 
engagement at the beauty parlor. 

48 



While I was standing on the corner waiting for Mabel, a shriek, half of 
terror, half of pain, sounded sharply in my ears. I turned quickly in the 
direction from which the cry came. Much to my horror, I saw a little child, 
who had been knocked down by a speeding runabout, lying on the pave- 
ment, apparently dead. A crowd had gathered almost instantly and out of 
the throng stepped a doctor and nurse who happened to be passing when the 
accident occurred. When the doctor removed her hat, 1 recognized Lillie 
Smith. Marian Haynie was the nurse who gently cared for the child. 

Just then Mabel Claire came up and we set out for the beauty parlor. 
On arriving there, Mabel left me and went into another room to have her 
hair dressed w^hile I waited for the manicurist to appear. In a few minutes 
Fannie Paltrowitch came in and announced that she w^as the manicurist. She 
sat down and began what seemed to her a hopeless job, all the while talking 
about old Tubman days. "Do you know what has become of any of '20's 
class?" I asked her. "Oh, yes," she responded in her familiar voice, "Annie 
Goldstein is the best stenographer in town. She works for the largest de- 
partment store here." I asked her if she knew what had become of Irma 
Mitchell, and if she was still going to the dentist. "Why, Irma was up here 
a few days ago, and told us the glad news that she didn't have to go to the 
dentist any more or w^ear poultices for days at a time, for she now had an 
entirely new set of teeth, guaranteed never to hurt." I laughed, as 1 re- 
membered Irma's poultices. 

Mabel Claire then bounced into the room and said, "Oh, I have a sur- 
prise for you. Guess whom I've found! Then she dragged Lucile Beatse, 
the noted hair-dresser, out of the adjoining room. I was dumfounded. 
"We've been talking about by-gone school days, " Mabel announced, "and 
Lucile told me that Anita Hodo despaired of ever marrying and had settled 
dow^n with all her pets and w^as making a living by knitting sweaters for the 
'Ladies' Exchange.' Can you imagine Anita not marrying? You remember 
Marguerite McEween? Lucile says she's married, and lives on a farm not 
far from here. " So Marguerite preferred feeding chickens to the gay life of 
the city. 

That evening we dolled up in our "glad rags " and journeyed forth to 
the theater, fully expecting to be bored to death. No sooner were we 
seated than the curtain rose. Glancing hurriedly at the program, I sav^ that 
the first number w^as a selection on the piano by a Mme. Louise Ellaso, one of 
the greatest musicians and composers of the day. Just then a short, stout 
woman wobbled out on the stage and sat down at the piano. She began 
by playing a lively march. I noticed the player's left foot which constantly 
bobbed up and down in time with the music. Mabel nudged me and asked, 
"Whom does that remind you of? It makes me homesick for Tubman. " I 
examined the program again, and, putting two and two together, and making 
Louise Ellas out of it, I imparted my secret to Mabel. As soon as the per- 
formance was over, we rushed around to the stage door to see Louise. What 
a meeting it w^as, too! She told us that when she grew^ tired of entertaining 
others with her splendid art that she ran away to a little country town and 

49 



opened a store at which the school boys and girls might buy cakes and 
chocolate bars. There she dreamed of old Tubman days. 

Next morning found Mabel and me on our journey again. "Since 
we've seen so many Tubmanites on our trip, I've become very anxious to see 
Tubman once more, " I said. 

"Let's stop and go through it," said Mabel, "and see if it's changed 
much since 1920." Of course, I agreed, and we began to descend. When 
we landed, a reporter ran up to find out who we were. As soon as she 
came close enough we recognized Dorothy Egbert, reporter for The Herald. 
She took us to town in her "flivver" and "dropped" us at Broad and Jackson 
Streets. We walked up to Ninth Street. There we found Hortense Mintz', 
wearing large smoked glasses, and playing a violin for dear life. How sorry 
we were to see that Hortense had lost her eyesight! We went up to speak 
to her, but when we were only a foot or two av^^ay, she greatly surprised us 
with: "Hello, Sports! So glad to see you, but 1 can't take off my 'specks' 
here. Come around to the house tonight and we'll have a big time. 

I then bought a newspaper and we caught the first car for Tubman. 
When we were comfortably seated, 1 divided the paper with Mabel and we 
searched for Augusta news. Mabel, who had the first sheet, suddenly ex- 
claimed, "Just look! Mary Ashe is editor-in-chief. She has evidently 
profited by her experience in Tubman. " "Oh, isn't this exciting? " I cried, 
'Secrets of Love,' by Bessie White. Who would have thought it?" 

"Here's a description of Mary McElmurray's wedding," said Mabel. 
Yes, 1 remembered the diamond she wore at Tubman. She said her father 
gave it to her. Oh! well — that's what they all say. "But look, " I cried, in 
my turn, "at this advertisement: 'Miss Aimee Robinson, best jazz teacher 
in town; expert on all new steps. Music furnished by the Blitchington 
Orchestra.' 

"All out for Tubman! " We jumped up and got off quickly. Slowly 
we made our way up the walk, taking in all the familiar surroundings. We 
were greeted at the door by Gladys Luquire, who told us that she was Ruth 
Fund's stenographer, who in turn had succeeded Mr. Garrett as principal, 
but had recently sent in her resignation. She w^ore a solitaire on her left 
hand, and it was rumored that she w^as busily embroidering "C's " on table 
linen. You can judge the rest for yourself. 

Gladys showed us over the school. Everything was the same, except 
for a few improvements. As we passed down the second floor hall, 1 fully 
expected to see Miss Flisch standing at the head of the stairs with her "Keep 
to the right, girls," but instead a little blonde woman was in her place. So 
Lillian Cheval had followed in Miss Flisch's footsteps. 

As we passed the Commercial room, 1 glanced in and on the desk I 
saw a large picture of Miss Mattox. 1 immediately looked for Lulie, for 1 
knew that she must surely be somewhere near. Sure enough there was she, 
for now Lulie was head of the commercial department. 

50 



r 



"Come down and take a look at the gym, " Gladys suggested. 1 was 
surprised to find that Gladys Matthews was now the teacher in this depart- 
ment. She showed us the new conveniences and improvements, the greatest 
of which was the large, snow^y-white pool, the delight of the student body. 
"Look how clear it is," Gladys said. "You can see this dime on the bottom 
when I drop it. 1 leaned over to w^atch for the dime, when suddenly I 
lost my footing and fell in with a great splash. 1 wiped the water from my 
eyes and opened them. Where was I? The moon was shining brightly and 
the tide had risen to the porch of my cottage. 1 looked up. The hammock 
w^as swinging vigorously. So that explained it. I had been dreaming for 
the last two hours and in my excitement had fallen out of the hammock, 
which was hung near the edge of the porch, into the water. I forgot to 
mention that I had lobster salad for supper.

Last Will and Testament 




E, the Senior Class of Tubman High School, City of Augusta, 
County of Richmond, State of Georgia, being of sound and 
disposing mind, and realizing that our time is short, do 
make, declare, and publish this instrument as our last Will 
and Testament, hereby revoking all other wills heretofore 
made by us: 

We, the Class of 1920, hereby bequeath to the Class of 1921, our 
present position in chapel, and our daily lectures on a Senior's responsibility 
and influence. Also our various privileges and our present realization that 
being a Senior verifies the proverb, "AH that glitters is not gold. " 

To Irene Jackson, Annie Murray leaves her '"gym" talents and her pro- 
fessional qualities as captain of numerous teams. 

Clarice Wise bequeaths her permanent wave and patented giggle to 
Ruth Nowell. 

Verlie Whitlock leaves to Mary Ferguson her As and A+'s, which were 
given to her at every wink of the eye. 

To Belle Walker, Ruth Fund leaves her art of presiding over frequent 
class meetings. 

. Mabel Claire Speth leaves to Deryl Clark her business-like ability, which 
talent was displayed on every occasion and was tried in the fiery furnace 
during the drive for Annual subscriptions. 

Remembering the maxim: "He that hath, let him give to him who 
hath not," Edna Ingram leaves her frequent blushes to Polly Watson. In 
drawing up this document, we request that Folly have one brand of blushes 
patented, that is, the brand Edna uses when she misses her history. 

Ethel Hitt bequeaths her artistic ability to Minnie Goldie Fell, hoping 
that Minnie will never have to pose, without compensation, for so many art 
posters as did Ethel. 

Fannie Paltrowitch leaves to Edna Maxwell her oratorical powers in 
delivering a history report. May Edna from now on prize and make use 
of this splendid endowment, thereby relieving her mind of numberless ex- 
cuses and thus lightening the hearts of her teachers. 

To any unfortunate Junior, Gladys Luquire bequeaths the position of 
her name in the middle of the history class roll — the mere fact that her 
name stood in said position offered sufficient excuse to use it always as a 
good starting point. 

Louise Ellas leaves her position as Tubman pianist to Martha Wall. 
She would bequeath also her habit of patting her left foot to said Martha, 
but, as such is impossible, it is useless to try to draw up a legal document 
concerning same. 



52 



The First Senior Hockey Team leaves its hard-earned and long-worked- 
for championship to the First Junior Team. Accompanying this gift are many 
bruises inflicted by ruthless opponents. 

The Seniors of the Glee Club leave vacant places and, in bequeathing 
them to favored members of the Junior Class, we hope that they who fail 
heir to this heritage will derive as much pleasure and delight from their 
Thursday afternoon rehearsals as did the Seniors of 1920. 

It is with the greatest respect and the deepest admiration for the present 
Faculty that w^e now bequeath that honored body to the under-classmen. We 
leave these teachers to all the classes inclusively, but only for the term of 
their natural high school life. We hand down to them the exclusive right 
to these our instructors, favorites or otherwise. 

After due deliberation w^e leave to any girl in the Junior Class who is 
bright enough to decipher them all of Mr. Stemple's Laboratory note-book 
corrections. 

We devise and bequeath our Senior Class room, number 23, to the 
Juniors, believing that they will appreciate the four brilliant electric lights 
w^hich have afforded much enjoyment to several Seniors during the past 
year. Along with this gift go the many luxurious seats, now calmly awaiting 
their future occupants. 

To the Class of '21 we hand down the many golden opportunities lost 
during our four years at Tubman, hoping that said class wll have fewer to 
bequeath to the class of '22. 

With hearts full of love and gratitude to our beloved principal, we be- 
queath him and his polka dot tie to all under-classmen. May every Tubman 
girl prize and appreciate his thoughtfulness and interest which have been 
manifested ever since his first year at Tubman. 

We leave to all Freshmen our heartfelt sympathy and appreciation of 
all their trials and hardships. 

We, the Seniors of 1920, pledge our undying love and unwavering 
devotion to our Alma Mater. At this time when signs of dissolution are 
at hand, ■we, the Senior Class of 1 920, devise and bequeath said beloved 
Alma Mater to all girls of Augusta of high school age. That part of our 
interest v/e give to them for future generations, hoping that in later years 
they will regard her with the same loyal pride and sincere appreciation as 
we do, the departing Seniors of 1920. 

(Signed) SENIOR CLASS OF 1920, 

Ruth Bishop (Testator).

Farewell To Seniors 



Seniors, Seniors, soon you'll leave us, leave us — Ah! to graduate. 
Graduation days are coming; glorious, thrilling, happy fete. 

No more running for the street car; no more getting up at dawn: 
No more basket-ball at Tubman; no more tennis on the lavv^n. 

Ah! You Seniors, how you've scared us with your talk of studies hard. 
Just the same we will forgive you, for your books you 11 soon discard. 

Think, O Seniors, what you're leaving — leaving us to take your place — 
Leaving all your days of school work and your record-breaking pace. 

But departing, leave behind you as you onward, forward go, — 
Leave us that deep secret. Seniors, how you win the teachers so. 

Will us, too, the charming manner that you bluff the Freshmen with; 
That impressive dignity you mingle with your pep and pith. 

Think, O Seniors, whom you're leaving, must you leave us far behind? 
Yes. Tis plain we cannot keep you, though we wish Fate were more kind. 

Think, O Seniors, what you're leaving — ghosts of girlhood gaieties. 
Days v^rhen joy was ever present; hosts of Tubman memories. 

But 'tis life that calls you onvk^ard; and we, here, the chorus swell — 
"Fare thee well. If so it must be, then it must be; fare thee well."

Sophomore Class History 




S IT would take volumes to relate all concerning the Class of 
1922, it is deemed wise to mention only a few facts, which 
are self-evident. The first most obvious fact is that this is 
an unusually bright looking bunch of girls, and as they stand 
at the beginning of the rough and stormy pathway leading 
to the great "Hall of Fame," there is no doubt but that all of 
their names will be inscribed upon its walls. 

It was a memorable day in September, 1918, that the Class of 1922 
made its first appearance at Tubman. Our hopes ■were high, our spirits 
higher, and nothing, — not even the Sophomore's cutting remarks — could 
mar the happiness of that day. We w^ere a friendly, good-natured, optimistic 
class, and our ambition w^as to w^alk off with as many honors as possible, 
with as little work as possible. That we have secured the honors will be 
testified to, by, — w^ell, everybody except the Faculty. 



A3 



Of course, every truly great organization has its "ups and downs, " and 
the Class of '22 has been no exception. Our Freshman work was inter- 
rupted twice on account of the "Flu, " not to mention the appearance of a 
new Latin teacher at regular intervals of every two months. (That is one 
of the many reasons why Miss Dora loses so much sleep on account of this 
class. ) 

So far the Class of '22 has not really revealed to the world its won- 
ful ability in athletics. In fact, our class team has never won a single game 
of basket ball or hockey! However, we have not the slightest doubt but 
that the elements of greatness are in us, as we are fully convinced that it 
was due to the magnificent work on the part of our representatives, namely 
— Agee, Branch and Daniels, that the game with Waynesboro was such an 
overwhelming victory. 

As we will have to stop some time, it might as well be now, leaving 
volumes to remain untold about the class whose triumphs and successes will 
be renewed with greater and greater luster in the time to come. Look out 
for the Class of 1922, which has only been introduced in this brief sketch. 
They will some day make their mark in the world.

Looking Into 
The Future 






ERE we are Freshmen with four long dreary years of grind 
ahead of us. I wonder if well ever live through it? It 
certainly doesn't seem so. Every one teases us and calls us 
"Little Greenies, " but anyway we are not at the very bottom 
as the Sub-freshman have taken that responsibility. This 
year seems so long and just to think of three more! 



Just to imagine being Sophomores is a little more encouraging because 
we will not be Freshmen at any rate, and we'll have a little higher aim in life. 

But better still Juniors! Our class basket-ball team will be victorious 
over all the other classes and some of us will make the Varsity. It will be 
wonderful until we think of going home and studying. Something seems 
to always take the joy out of life. 

We can hardly realize that we will ever be real Seniors. it s so far off. 
But maybe we will some day. It must be a glorious feeling to know that 
next year we can do almost anything we want to and won't have any school 
to interfere. But when we come to think about it we would hate to leave 
old Tubman and how we would miss our old school-mates and the good 
times we used to have. 1 suppose, after all, the happiest days of our lives 
are when we are little Freshmen at Tubman.

-"^Hi^ 



What's A Sub ? 




OW the Seniors say that nothing from nothing leaves a sub, 
but that's just where they are wrong. When we first came 
here they used to laugh and say, "Oh, look at the little Subbies, 
they alw^ays get lost between classes! " Of course, we didn't 
get lost, w^e were just looking around to see how^ we liked 
the school. Anybody could have seen that. Why I've even 
heard them say, "Tubman is just like a kindergarten now! " 

And they groaned and fussed so you would think we were as bad as the 

measles. Of course, we do break out occasionally. 

What's a Sub? Well, now, you just listen I When October marks 
came out didn't vi'e have six "Subs " on the Honor Roll! What about that? 
Then we started playing basket-ball, and one day Miss Ruland put us up 
against the Juniors and the score stood 18-22 in favor of the Juniors. But 
just notice how near together those numbers come. Apd did you ever say 
"Sub " to a Sophomore? They begin to groan and turn red immediately; 
that's cause they are so tired being told the "Subs " are better than they 
are — Ha! They can laugh at us, but those same "Sophs " and Juniors better 
be careful, for we are Freshmen next year. 

Oh, yes, what is a Sub? Why we have more members than any other 
class; we almost beat the Juniors in basket-ball; we have a class Glee Club, 
and the teachers all love us; in fact, we are the very center of things at 
Tubman.

Sing Sing College, 

Empty Head Station, New York, 

February 13, 1920. 



Dear Miss Ruland : 

Friday we motored down to Bateville and basket-balled all 
afternoon. Then we tead for an hour. After that we trained 
back to Sing Sing and booked til dawn; then we went to sleep 
and Saturdayed that way. 

Yesterday we trolleyed to town and picture-showed and 
soda-watered until dark. That night we conglomerated in 
Emma's room and pokered until morning. 

To-day we horsed down to the pecan grove and nutted 
all morning. This afternoon our bugology class locomoted 
up to Lunville Hill and insected for two hours. 

We footed it back to school and dinnered until we had 
had enough; after which we pianoed until the door belled. 
We jazzed to cur rooms and roosted til the clock sevened. 

Hopable of an answer soon. 

Your dutified ex-pupil, 

IRENE.

Ancient Julius Caesars come to our class to stay, 

An make us girls get busy and drive laziness away; 

An" long with him came Cicero to try to make us flunk.

II. 

Once there was a Junior, 'at didn't like to cook, 

She took Domestic Science and she never owned a book. 

And every time the teacher asked what carbohydrates do, 

An proteins, fats and minerals — alas! she never knew? 

You better keep your note-book up and mind what youre about

III. 

You've got to study diction an' learn to write the themes, 
An' they must have coherence a la Addison's, it seems. 
Be sure to learn le verbe francais if you vi^ould parlez-vous; 
An' learn the propositions every day, old or new; 
An' draw the circles carefully, with tangents all about 
Or the problems sure will get you, if you

THE 

ATHT .KTTC 

ASSOCIAllON 






HE Athletic Association, as its name implies, deals with all 
competitions in Athletics of the school. The Association has 
just come into existence this year, but, judging from its suc- 
cessful beginning, we are certain that it w^ill continue to grow. 
The election of the officers of the Athletic Association takes 
place in January of each year. The president is chosen from 
the Senior Class; the vice-president from the Junior Class; 
secretary from the Sophomore Class, and the treasurer from the Freshman 
Class. One girl is also chosen as a representative of the Sub-Freshman Class. 

The purpose of the Association is to raise the standard of the school, 
and also to promote greater team spirit. The former is accomiplished by 
this ruling, that no one will be eligible to play on the school or class team, 
who fails to pass in any one subject at the mid-year examinations or in her 
daily recitations. The latter is accomplished by having four teams from each 
class in Hockey and Basket-ball. This gives all the girls a chance to make 
some team and to realize the meaning of team spirit. 

The Athletic Council consists of all the officers of the Athletic Associa- 
tion; a member of the Faculty, the Physical Director with her assistant, 
and the Principal. This Council shall present all letters and numerals to 
those girls winning same and may withhold any letter or numeral which it 
deems the winner unworthy of wearing.

SPORTS 










HIS year has been an epoch of new events at Tubman. The 
most important of these is the fact that Mr. Garrett has finally 
allowed us to have inter-school basket-ball games. The first 
of these games vs'as played with Waynesboro, and as we were 
inexperienced at the game we were S. G., as the saying is at 
Tubman. But in spite of the fact we were victorious in all 
the games. 

In the game with Ashley Hall the teams were more evenly matched, 
and the game was very exciting from the first. We intend to play the return 
game with Ashley Hall at Charleston, the twenty-first of March. 

We also have a game scheduled to play the Savannah High School some 
time in the near future. Every one is looking forward to this event with 
much enthusiasm. 

The Inter-Class Hockey Tournament was won by the first Seniors over 
the Fourth Freshmen; the score was 6 to 0. The Seniors will receive letters 
and the Freshmen numerals. 

Another interesting event to take place in the Spring is the Swimming 
Meet. Through the efforts of Mr. Garrett and Miss Ruland, we have se- 
cured the use of the Y. W. C. A. pool every Friday afternoon for tw^o 
hours. Miss Ruland, who is in charge of the swimming classes, devotes 
the first hour to the beginners, and the second to the more experienced swim- 
mers. The preliminary meet was held in February. This was to give us an 
idea of what the real meet will be like. There are to be contests for form 
swimming and some for speed swimming. Judging from the way the pre- 
liminary meet came out, there is going to be a great deal of competition in 
the final meet. 

Basket-Bail Schedule, 1920. 

Tubman vs. Waynesboro at Tubman, 5 3 to 7. 
Tubman vs. Waynesboro at Waynesboro, 31 to 6. 
Tubman vs. Ashley Hall at Tubman, 1 6 to 17.

Miss Evelyn Barnes, an American girl, born in Japan, and whose parents 
die of fever, is brought up as a Japanese maiden. Her father's secretary 
uses her property for his own ends. When Evelyn, known as Cherryblossom, 
is about eighteen, Worthington (the secretary) returns to Japan on his yacht 
with a party of American friends. One of them, John Smith, falls in love 
with Cherry and wishes to marry her, but Kokemo, who has brought her 
up as his own daughter, wishes her to marry Togo, a rich politician. The 
action of the piece centers around Jack's effort to outwit Togo and Kokemo. 
Eventually Cherry learns her true identity, comes into her ow^n property, 
marries Jack, and all ends happily. The music is catchy, the hit of the 
play being the song "Cherryblossom."

Act 1 — A formal drawing room in Rose McCloud's city home. 
Act II — A garden on Rose McCloud's country estate. 
Time — The present. One month elapses between acts. 



SYNOPSIS 

Rose McCloud, the most popular younjg society belle of her time, is bored \vith 
her artificial existence. An endless round of festivities and a maddening procession of 
adoring debutantes, newspaper interviewers, charity and reform leaders seeking her 
financial support, dress makers, milliners, etc., drive her to distraction. There was but 
one relief in Roses life, and that w^as w^hen in the company of Alvine Grey, a charming 
young society idler, but somewhat different from the other men she had met. But now 

he w^as going away forever and live out of her sight. Having achieved great success 

in society theatricals, Rose decides to go on the stage, and is desirous of obtaining the 
leading role in a play by Lady Grey, an eccentric woman playw^right. Much to her 
ama;:ement and disappointment. Lady Grey flatly refuses to consider her for the part, 
and will not even grant her an interview. in utter disgust she decides to go to the 
country as just a plain rustic girl. 

The second part takes place at Rose's country estate, w^here she is thoroughly en- 
joying the simple life of a country girl. One day she makes friends with a nice old 
country lady w^ho lives next door, who after a time turns out to be Lady Grey. She 
informs Rose that her son is returning home for a visit the follow^ing day, and she is 
very anxious for Rose to meet him. On the following day Lady Grey comes over with 
her son who turns out to be Alvine. When Lady Grey discovers the true identity of 
Rose, she promises her the desired role in the play; also Rose promises Alvine something, 
and all ends happily.

"Mister Tom, sir- 



The voice came from a short, fat, little woman standing at the threshold. 
Her substantial figure was silhouetted by the bright light in the hall behind 
her as she stood facing the dim library whose only light came from the glow- 
ing logs in the big fireplace. 

The reply came, veiled in smoke, from the depths of a huge arm-chair. 
"Yes, Katie — you're going tonight, then, are you? 1 don't know what will 
become of me without you; I'll never be able to find anything. Why must 
you desert me after all these years? " 

"No^v, Mistec Tom, sir, sure you're not begrudging me the fine husband 
I'm getting, aire ye, sir? I'm that sorry to be leaving you this sudden-like, 
but it's like jam tarts, sir, this marrying. The time to take husbands is whin 
they're going past. " 

"Well, well, Katie, that's not bad at all — I rather think you're right 
about that. Here 1 am a poor old man used to having his nice fire made, 
his slippers toasting before it, everything done for him. Oh, you've petted 
me, Katie; why you've made me wear over-shoes until now I'm miserable 
whenever there is a heavy dew if I'm not gum-booted." 

"And it's worrying I'll be about me poor Mister Tom. But. ye're not 
old, sir. Lissen to the man — old! and you not thirty-six, sir! I'd be aisy in 
me mind if I could be knowing some nice, pretty young lady was coming to 
be your wife." 

"There again, Katie, we have your theory of 'jam tarts.' 

"I'll be going now, sir. Twill be that odd not to be doing for ye 
every day now. You've been a foine, good master to me. Good-bye, 
Mister Tom, dearie, yell take care of yourself, sir, for old Katie's sake, won't 
ye, sir? " 

"You've been too good to me, Katie, and I wish you every happiness 
in your marriage. Come back some time to see me, will you? " 

"And that I will, sir, and be glad to. Good-bye and God bless you, sir." 

They were standing before the fire. It was only after she turned her 
back that she cautiously wiped away a tear; and it was only after her 
back was turned that a sort of helpless look came into his eyes. At the door 
she looked back. 

"Mister Tom, sir " 

"Yes, Katie?" 

"Ye — yell be rememberin' your rubber shoes in the morning, sir, and, 
indeed, all the time. It's raining now. Good-bye, sir. " 

"Good-bye." 



96 



So old Katie was to be married — and for a second time. Humph, she 
must have liked it. Bum business, though, for a man — always dangerous. 
Funny things, women! These were the thoughts that passed through his 
mind as he sank deeper into his chair by the fire. 

Strange he hadn't married, anyway. He pursued the same line of 
thought, old cynic that he was. Here he was tied down in London by 
business — his mother up in the north at Bayberry Bend for his father's health. 
They stayed there and he stayed here, alone. Now if he had asked Ruth 
at one time she might have had him, but, worse luck, he hadn't wanted 
to ask her; quite nice girl, though, very. And Maizie, why she almost chased 
him (conceited dog that he was), but she did! Fine girl but for that! 
Somehow he vaguely reminded himself of the "Bachelor" in "Reveries of a 
Bachelor. " 

Then there was Peggy. Ah! Peggy, who lived just across the way. 
Why hadn't he played up to her more? It w^as seven years ago w^hen he 
rode horseback so much and she golfed. She wouldn't ride — wouldn't try, 
even (pure meanness, he had thought). A mere incident now^, but then 
how they had quarreled over it. He wouldn't golf if she wouldn't ride, 
and she, just as firm. But even w^hen he knew her best he hadn't dared 
to speak of love — and weddings. Somehow she awed, yet fascinated him. 
Still she was rather mean about the riding — quite mean, in fact. Yet, why 
should he care now? Lord! the last time he'd ridden had been ages ago, 
and now he had no time. Young people think of these little insignificant 
things that aren't character, that are only on the surface — "sijeunesse savait" 
— she no longer played golf much; but no matter — he wondered — he was 
more tolerant now. Maybe she, too — ridiculous, why a man from Hamp- 
shire was most attentive now, a frequent visitor. She didn't seem dread- 
fully interested, but one couldn't tell — what if ! 

He jumped up. In the hall he found his hat, and as he opened the 
door a cool rain confronted him. His overshoes — w^here in the devil had 
Katie put them? 

"Oh! botheration; no need for overshoes to run across the street." 

JUDITH FARRELL, '21.

To Our Flunkers 



Here's to all the "Flunkers" who took the test, but failed! 
It was your lot, your fate was "sot," 
Vour happiness was quailed! 

The teacher's teachings resulted not — less pity did they give — 
The things they said went thru your head 
Like water thru a sieve! 

Miss Ruland "sat" upon you hard, and calmly up and said, 
"If 1 had known your brains were gone 
You'd have stayed at home instead. " 

Ah, hapless, happenings happen often as in this case, we find 
That what we knew, just got the "flu " 
And made us fall behind! 

But here's to all you "Flunkers" — just show those teachers "red " — ! 
And make them say, ','You've won the day" — but 
" 'Tis better done than said." 

M. B. DOUGHTY.

Nevertheless 

A Musical Comedy in Two Acts. 



TIME — Present.

ACT II — That Evening. 



CAST OF CHARACTERS 

Mrs. Wm. Henry Smith-Morton Ruth Pund

Mary Margaret Smith-Morton Louise Ellas 

James Randolph Smith-Morton Mary Essie Morgan 

Rita Ponselle, of the Winter Garden : Rhea Shapiro

Pianist Deryl Hilton 

Extras Marion Haynie, Etc. 



Deryl suggested the name, but who wrote it? Don't all speak at once. 
(Although to tell the truth, that is the way it was "written.") The news- 
papers gave Miss Ruland the credit, and I'm sure none of us begrudge her 
that much praise. 

Could anyone ever forget Mabel Claire, hauling furniture in the Red 
Cross truck with the leaking top? If you have ever taken a ride in that 
truck, you will probably wonder if the furniture was recognizable by the 
time it reached its destination. 

The first act introduces to us all the main characters, and we discover 
that the newly-rich Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Henry Smith-Morton have very am- 

101 



bitious plans for their son and daughter, namely, that they wish to add 
another fortune to the family in the form of Miss Wilmonice Astoria Scruggs, 
and a title in the form of Lord Witless. But (if you didn't forget to come 
back after the intermission) you found that both son and daughter had 
plans of their own, and very different they were! Bessie was excellent as a 
hen-pecked husband and Ruthie certainly did "lord it over him." And 
what attractive young girl could help falling in love with a man with a voice 
like Ruth's? Miss Scruggs and "Lord Witless" were both screamingly funny, 
and, in fact, there is more than a word of praise for each and every one of 
the main characters. 

In the second act there was a Red Cross "benefit. " During this act a 
great excitement was caused behind the scenes when the Winter Garden 
Ballet tried to change from a Turkish to a Spanish costume while James Ran- 
dolph Smith-Morton lit a cigarette! Edna Ingram and "Tuna " walked Egypt 
to the delight of the audience. Lulie and Lillian's song insured the fame of 
both of them. The real hit of the show was the song and dance of the 
two bell-hops. The audience called for several encores and, long before 
they were satisfied, Emma and Dorothy had collapsed behind the scenes. 

The true climax came — not when the heroine was about to rush into 
the arms of the hero — but when Isabelle, in a pair of none too loose trousers, 
slipped and fell on the borrowed carpet. The audience waited in breath- 
less suspense, but in a few minutes she got up, much to our relief, quite whole, 
in all respects. 

The greatest reward for our long and tiresome hours of practicing was 
— not the amount of money we took in, although that did help, but the fol- 
lowing extract from a press notice: 

"Nevertheless," a musical comedy in two acts, was rendered in the 
most brilliant manner by a cast that was so fine that the remark was made 
by some of the audience that few two-dollar shows that come to Augusta 
could equal this play as it was given by Tubman girls.""

The Following of the Faculty 



On October 15th, the Faculty of the T. H. S. was "Taken Off" at Tub- 
man by the Seniors. The caricatureation was fine, the girl who resembled 
a certain teacher the most, being taken for that teacher. The regular routine 
of a Tubman day was carried out. There was an assembly, a Faculty meet- 
ing, and a few of the regular classes. 

At assembly, "Mr. Garrett," in the person of Ruth Bishop, made the 
usual remarks; that the Freshmen were doing too many stunts on the trapezes 
in the "gym"; that the driveway in front of Tubman was not a race-course, 
and, therefore, the "specials" were not goals; and that the lunch room was 
operating on cost basis. 

Bessie White, as "Mr. Hickman," appeared in chapel, told a love story 
and recited a poem and received much applause. 

Ruth Fund, as "Miss Flisch," made two or three library announce- 
mfnts, and "Miss Dora," Augusta von Sprecken, made some "schedule" an- 
nouncements, ending them with a list of irregular girls w^hom she wished to 
meet immediately. Just as every one had started out and the pianist was 
playing the march, "Miss Page," Isabelle Garrett, stood up and made a 
hurried announcement that the Junior French books had come and she 
wanted them to have them for the next class. 

Next a Faculty meeting, to which the teachers came in their charac- 
teristic manners. A few of the most studious and conscientious girls were 
discussed as doing the most impossible and unheard of things, for them, as: 
playing cards and drinking in the locker room, using a "pony" for their 
Latin; and being on the "ragged edge" in French. Then the tardy question 
was discussed. A study hall was suggested by Mabel Claire Speth, as "Miss 
Ruland," and seconded by Bessie Sandler, as "Miss Comey. To this sug- 
gestion. Miss Flisch answered, "I abominate study halls, and when my time 
comes to hold one, I'll be sick at 2:10 and be carried to the hospital, if 
necessary." 

Then the classes were gone through with. In Miss Dora's there was 
practically no lesson. She told her pupils, after sneezing, the story of how 
she and a young man had gone "autoing" this past summer in the mountains, 
and the young man had had hay fever. She knew she had caught it because 
every time she was around chalk, she began to sneeze. At first she left the 
room to attend to some schedules, and told the class that they could recite 
softly, "Roman Virgil. " Of course, it was repeated in a stage whisper. 
Then one girl turned over in her desk, breaking it. Miss Dora came in at 

103 



this point and told the girl to get "Mose." Marie Sumerau, as "Mose, " en- 
' tered with a monkey wrench in hand. She was very much like the real Mose 
with blue overalls on. 

In Dorothy Brill or Miss Wood's class the ink-wells had to be filled, 
and Thelma Prescott, as "Mattie, " came in to fill them. 

Miss Flisch held a "current event " class and was interrupted by Edna 
Ingram, as "Miss Gibbs." She dismissed her as rapidly as possible. 

Clarice Wise, as "Mr. Stemple," tiptoed around the room and used very 
short chalk. He told about copper and nascent oxygen, illustrating this by 
the story of Lydia and Pauline. 

Olga Hargrove, as "Miss Hamilton," had a very interesting class in arith- 
metic. She tried to distinguish between arithmetic cones and ice cream cones. 
She couldn't work an example because a Sub-Fresh had borrowed her book 
which had answers in it. 

Annie Lee Cannon, as "Miss Mattox, " had a shorthand class. She dic- 
tated a good many words in shorthand, such as "tenytime, " "andam, " ""alwiz," 
"always avoid man," "'always avoid man with typewriter, " "always avoid a 
man with typewriter without value. " 

"Miss Page" had her French class, at which time she wrote in her char- 
acteristic way on the blackboard and "jabbered " out French rules, yards in 
length. 

In Louise Ellas or "Miss Holley's " geometry class a very brilliant re- 
mark was made: That a moving point generated heat. Also the lesson for 
the next day was assigned after the cecond bell had rung.

Miss West: "1 wouldn't, either."

"Stempie " says: "Fish cant weigh water, but still they have scales." 

"Why is a Tubman girl, eating in the hall, like a fish? " 
'Because every time she bites she's caught! " 

Miss Comey startled her English Class with the surprising remark: 
'Though he slay me yet will 1 live!" 

Mr. Stempie: "Now, Miss Sandler, can you tell us what space is?" 
Bessie: "I've got it in my head, but I can't say it. " 

Miss Wilson was writing away with indescribable haste. From the pupils 
before her could he heard inaudible whispers and snickers. Finally in des- 
peration she cried out: "Hash! ! ! " 

Mabel: "Say, Elsie, there was a fight down in the lunch room the other 
day. " 

Elsie: '"Why, who was it?" 

Mabel: ""Just a stale roll got fresh and knocked down the whole lunch." 

Miss Flisch: ""What form of literature existed during the period we 
are now studying? ' - 

Ethel: "Poetry." 

Miss Flisch: ""What kind of poetry?" 

Ethel: '"Prose."

One Phase of 

Tubman Life 



Rows upon rows of little brown desks and in 
each desk sat, or rather squirmed, a girl. My! 
such wiggling, twisting, turning and skrewing about 

they were all doing. Could it be yes, surely, for 

on the door one might read "Study II." Then what 
was the matter? Why were they not at ■work, study- 
ing or, at least, keeping quiet? 1 wondered until, 
by chance, my eyes fell upon the clock — ah! there 
was the reason! It was fourteen minutes after twelve. 

You don',t understand how that could be the reason? Well, follow me 
as I — and no more is heard as the bell rings and in a flash the study hall is 
empty. Come on, we must hurry — for goodness' sake, don't stop! We 
will never get there in time. And we dash at such a perilous speed down the 
steps that the safety of our necks is endangered. 

Bang! We land at the bottom and such bedlam — shouts and squeals 
are heard. We hurry to the scene of action. 

Oh, yes, of course! The lunch room. Well, now for some food. We 
plunge into the crowd. Soon we are submerged and in looking about vvfe 
wonder if we are moving or if the crowd is. I turn to my companion — and 
— oh! horrible! My face comes in violent contact w^ith a chocolate ice cream 
cone. 1 pull at my handkerchief, but find that, in the confusion, I have half 
a buttered roll in my hand. Now, how do you suppose? 

Crash! and I felt myself shoved along rapidly. I rush past counters 
covered w^ith cakes, cookies and fruit. I long for a taste, but I am com- 
pelled, by the surging of the crowd, to continue. I can't stop — why! What's 
this? Oh, here we are outdoors— up a few steps now and there's another 
lunch table. Now I will get some food. I'll shove into the crowd; I'll be 
as impolite as possible; but I'll be fed! I will! In a moment I am almost 
smothered. I hear myself shouting, "Two tuna fish! One meat — two tuna 
fish — two — tuna fish two — tuna fish two tuna 



And I wake up.

SNOWDRIFT 

Pure Vegetable Cooking Fat 



TASTE IT 

And see what we mean 
when we say that Snow- 
drift is sweet and fresh. 
Snowdrift is rich — much 
richer than butter — but so 
deHcate and fresh that it 
does not alter the flavor of 
the food you cook with it. 

CREAM IT 

Snowdrift does not get too 
hard nor too soft no mat- 
ter what the weather. It is 
always just the right creamy 
consistency that is easiest 
to use. 

SMELL IT 

Snowdrift is sweet — as you 
use the word to describe 
sweet cream. After you 
open the can. Snowdrift 
"keeps" well. The advan- 
tage is that in its airtight 
can. Snowdrift is fresh 
when you start to use it in 
your own kitchen, not al- 
ready stale when you get it. 

LOOK AT IT 

Snowdrift is made of only 
the finest vegetable oil, 
which is always light in 
color, and then refined to 
a purity which makes Snow- 
drift white.

IMars ransack 



Go Thru Desks and Laboratory, 
and End by Eating Preserves 
in Pantry. | 

Burglars Wednesday night ransacked 
practically every room and desk at the 
Tubman School, on Walton Way, but ap- 
parently left empty-handed. Professor 
T. Harry Garrett staled Thursday morn- 
ing that nothing had been missed, al- 
though it was probable that some ar- 
ticles of negligible value were taken. 

When the school was opened Thursday 
morning it was found that the burglars 
had taken inventory of practically every 
thing in the building. Instead of a 
searchlight, they had used matches, and 
the burnt stems were scattered all over 
the floor. This phase of the burglary 
was the most serious, because of fire 
danger. 

After ransacking the class rooms, the 
thieves visited the laboratory and tam- 
pered with the chemicals, some Of which 
were of a highly explosive nature. They 
ended the program by going into the 
panti-y and eating some preserves. 

The police w'ere notified Thursday 
morning, and an investigation is now 
being conducted by t he detectives.
